Pie a Professor!

Have you ever wanted to pie a professor? Here's your chance. Several professors are participating, including our own Science Division professors, Dr. Ingold from Biology, and Dr. Daquila from the MACS Department. The Science Office has three jars--for Dr. Ingold, Dr. Daquila, and Dr. Nutt. Simply place your spare change and a slip of paper with your name and contact information into one of the professor's jars. The professor with the most money will get pied, and one name will be drawn to throw the pie.

Vote between September 17 and September 28. Winners will be announced the following week.

All proceeds will assist in sending Boy Scounts from Troop 158 in Zanesville to summer camp, as part of the Fall 2007 Student Teacher Advocacy Projects. For more infomation contact
